    Amazing World-Building

    In a paranormal romance world filled to capacity with werewolves, vampires, demons, ghouls, zombies, angels.well you get the idea it is nice to find a refreshingly new twist to the paranormal world, the Light Hunters. This race obtains energy through the environment as well as any object that contains energy of any kind. They then use that power to sustain their race, heal their sick and sometimes even to take life away. I really enjoyed being introduced to this world and I'm eager to learn more as the series continues.

    Adam & Bobbie were very believable characters and the path that I got to walk with them through their story was very emotional, real, steamy hot & it kept me on the edge of my seat! I loved them both and really liked that the war hero was female. I don't think that avenue is explored enough, at least out of the books that I've read. While the characters were great, the story did slow down somewhat, at least for me, during the middle. However, by the end, the action resumed and the book ended great with an AMAZING set-up for the next book.

    This is my first Caridad Piñeiro book, but after reading, I can most definitely say that I'll be reading more, especially of her Sin & Sin Hunter series'.

    So if you're looking for a great PNR book but are tired of the same 'ol, same 'ol - make sure to grab this series, you won't be disappointed!

    A Must Read

    Like nothing I have ever read before!

    Adam Bruno is definitely lost. He has no idea why he is the way he is and has no idea of his past. His powers allow him to do things he doesn't understand. The only person who knows of his powers is his adopted father and he has forced him to stay hidden all his life.

    Bobbie is a retired marine. She was injured in battle and is now home struggling to recover. She is sick of hurting, frustrating cause she is not healing and the last thing she wants is to fight another battle.

    When the two of them meet, you can feel the attraction instantly. It is as if they are drawn to eachother. The chemistry is electrifying and hot. The story line is so unique. I have read about shifters and I have read about magical people but this is nothing like that. The things Adam does with his power are amazing. Caridad does a very good job with description to give you a very clear picture. I absolutely enjoyed this book to it's fullest.

    It does take a little while to get going. There are three sides to the story and setting up all perspectives took some time. Also keeping them straight is sometimes confusing and I did have to go back to reference a name once or twice. This book was equally split up between various view points. I loved how during a scene Ms Piniero would frequently switch view points in order to show both sides simultaneously.


    You will be chomping at the bit for the next book in the series "The Claimed" Ms Piniero leaves you wanting more!!! A definite must read.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    This was my first Caridad Pineiro read and I wasn’t disappointed.  Let’s start with the negative.  Because this is the first book in the series, there is a lot of setting up of the world Caridad has created, as well as introducing lots of characters.  At times I got a little lost trying to keep up.  But it’s all necessary filler.

    But the positives out weighed the negatives.  I really liked the character of Bobbie.  She’s strong, determined and thrown into a strange paranormal world.  And she’s the perfect foil to Adam, a loner who needs a strong woman to stand up to him, yet support him — especially as his world is just about to get flipped upside down.  And then these paranormal “clans” of Light and Shadow Hunters were unique and I loved being introduced to their conflict. As I read, I found myself anticipating where this series is going to go.  To me, that’s a sign of having hooked me.  I will definitely be picking up the sequel, The Claimed, when it is released in May 2012.

    As it¿s the first book in the series, the ¿world setup¿ had to o

    As it’s the first book in the series, the ‘world setup’ had to occur with plenty of information to try to soak up. However, you’re not bombarded with all the information at once as the author has strategically calculated the release of information throughout the book and has made it part of the story as both the Hero and Heroine learn who they truly are and how they fit into this new world.

    Let’s begin with our Heroine as the author deserves a round of applause for creating such a strong, independent, and likable character! Bobbie is a decorated war hero who was injured in the line of duty and not only has suffered through the loss of her team, but the loss of part of herself. In her eyes, she will no longer be normal and her dream of a white picket fence with a husband and kids will not be occurring. However, she doesn’t wallow in self-pity. She has her moment of breaking down, when the stress of it all and the reality that her initial dreams as she saw them will not be coming true hit her, but then that moment passes and she takes a deep breath and moves forward with her life. She accepts her new life and knows life is short! It was awesome to read this book and not have to roll my eyes at a whiny, weak minded heroine. THANK YOU Caridad!! With this being said, she’s still 100% woman, who can kick the bad guys ass!! Bobbie has been through a lot, but like a strong woman, she will not allow situations or circumstances to dictate her life!

    Our Hero, Adam, well let’s see:
    Gorgeous = check
    Has Money = check
    Smart = check
    Mysterious = check
    Flaws = check

    With Adam, we have the classic hero; however he and his story are far from the traditional paranormal romance genre. Without providing spoilers, Adam doesn’t remember his past. He knows something tragic occurred to him and his family when he was around 5 or 6 years old, but has no idea what that is or who he is. Hiss adopted father has been his one constant and someone who has been there for him regardless of the fact that he isn’t ‘normal’. This is where I said that Caridad strategically places what we learn throughout the book; we learn as the characters do. Adam struggles to understand who or what he is and has dedicated his entire life to trying to figure that out.

    Though we usually fall for our heroes, even though they are usually conceited, smartasses, semi-untamable, Adam isn’t like that at all. He is smart, extremely business savvy which has lead him to be a millionaire, and he is pretty down to earth. Yes, he secludes himself and is mysterious, but it isn’t because he believes people will only like him for his money, but rather his concern is that he will hurt them with his powers. No worries, he definitely has the Alpha quality, but chooses to use it when necessary.

    The story line of the “Light Hunters” and the “Shadow Hunters” has the classic concept of good vs. bad but the story itself is intriguing! An ancient civilization which spawned a new breed of humans that now live among us in secret and must feed off of energy in order to survive. The continued struggle for that energy source, the need for the clans to remain a secret to humans and the war between light and dark drive the story forward.

    I really enjoyed the new twist to a genre that can be saturated with extremely similar concepts and ideas. Looking forward to seeing the story and characters evolve in the next installment of the series “The Claimed”.
